`This is our logic’ says St Bonaventure, pointing to the cross (Gaudete et exsultate 174).
John18:1 – 19:42
‘It is finished.’
I have often said that the saints only began to be saints when they were convinced that God loved them boundlessly. That is why we have to follow up the stations of our Lord’s suffering as stations of love. Saint Paul said: He loved me – not just in a general way: He loved me personally. … He emptied himself, he allowed himself to be destroyed, even to die on the Cross. … He poured out all his blood … Why? Out of love for me. Out of love for the Heavenly Father. … He loved me and gave himself up for me. (17 March 1958 -JK)
